About

Most good gods make use of couatls as their agents. There are three couatl deities, however, whose word takes precedence over others in the hearts of couatls. These are the dualistic god of childbirth, protection, and warfare; the goddess of retribution, investigation, and rehabilitation; and the god of knowledge, memories, and migration.

Couatls are serpentine celestials who tirelessly help mortals reach their greatest potential all across the planes. Some serve benevolent deities as intermediaries while others serve the cause of good as they see fit.

Mix couatls (pronounced “meesh”) are guides to fledgling societies, providing fundamental information such as farming techniques, medicinal expertise, or more esoteric knowledge like the arcane arts.

Legends say that couatls and sahkils both rose to prominence as the first mortals. Each saw unique potential in the mortals; couatls saw hope and the potential to rise to achieve great feats, while sahkils saw the potential for fear. Fearful mortals would never accomplish anything, becoming useless piles of flesh whose souls would languish. These withered souls would be unable to properly travel the River of Souls, disrupting the delicate balance of the afterlife.

To this day, couatls work to inspire mortals and push them toward greater tasks while striving to keep the sahkils’ terror at bay.
